For the longest time, I’ve been wanting a refillable leather cover for my Seven Seas notebook. There are those made specifically for this notebook, but they’ve been out of stock since last year some time. I’ve looked elsewhere, but wasn’t sure the measurements would fit exactly. Besides the one in their website looked so nice so I waited. Today, I’m very thankful I did. It finally arrived, and it’s every bit as lovely as it looked in the photos. Excellent quality, and the texture of the leather is so soft … just to pick it up and hold it is a delight!
Today also a bunch of ink samples arrived. There was one I was most curious about; Akkerman #28 Hofkwartier Groen. I’d only seen online ink samples, and I wanted to see it in real life. I love it! Don’t know I would buy a full bottle, because I wouldn’t know when to use it, but still … it’s unusual and lovely 🙂 My cellphone photo doesn’t do it justice. I really don’t know how to take these ink photos to get them right.
